Jason L.wrote a review of ALPS Mountaineering Compression Sack on August 4, 2011
I guess this is my fault, but this bag ended up being WAY too big for anything that I would carry on a backpacking trip, and additionally even at the smallest (compressed fully) size, it will not fit into my backpack... and my backpack is not small.
I would recommend that this sack be used to store several blankets or a very large tent or something that will not be carried in a backpack.
The end caps are very "long", meaning that at the tightest the straps can be, there is still room for further compression...
The construction is very nice. If it was the right size and the end caps were shallower I would be very happy.
...measure twice, cut once.
Anyone want to trade me for a smaller one?
